CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012

CNN poll: 52% say Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012

By Michael O'Brien - 02/16/10 01:35 PM ET
52 percent of Americans said President Barack Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012, according to a new poll.

44 percent of all Americans said they would vote to reelect the president in two and a half years, less than the slight majority who said they would prefer to elect someone else.

Obama faces a 44-52 deficit among both all Americans and registered voters, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll released Tuesday. Four percent had no opinion.

The reelection numbers are slightly more sour than Obama's approval ratings, which are basically tied. 49 percent of people told CNN that they approve of the way Obama is handling his job, while 50 percent disapprove.

Still, the 2012 election is still a long way's away, with this fall's midterm elections looming large. Republicans are hoping to make inroads into Congress, while Democrats are hoping to hold onto gains won in the 2006 and 2008 cycles.

Respondents to CNN were split at 46 percent as to whether they preferred a generic Republican or Democratic candidate in this fall's elections.

At least one retiring lawmaker is confident Obama will sail to reelection, with Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) predicting Monday the president would win "overwhelmingly" in 2012.

The CNN poll, conducted Feb. 12-15, has a three percent margin of error.

Friday night when Geraldo started in on the president, I knew it was over. I think only Juan Williams is left to defend the great zero.

Here’s another shocker: He didn’t deserve the FIRST term, for heaven’s sake. Our media needs to be punished for at least a decade over their fawning, non-vetting coverage of this fraud who is currently occupying the Oval Office. To this day, I have never uttered or written the words “president” and Obama together. Something just isn’t American about this guy, his name, and his background. A fraud. An imposter. He needs to go.

I suspect the ‘Bradley effect’ is now taking hold in opinion polls about Obama.

Wiki appears to give a good definition of the phenomena:

- - - - - - - -

"The Bradley effect, less commonly called the Wilder effect,[1][2] is a theory proposed to explain observed discrepancies between voter opinion polls and election outcomes in some US government elections where a white candidate and a non-white candidate run against each other.[3][4][5] Instead of ascribing the results to flawed methodology on the part of the pollster, the theory proposes that some voters tend to tell pollsters that they are undecided or likely to vote for a black candidate, and yet, on election day, vote for the white opponent. It was named after Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, an African-American who lost the 1982 California governor's race despite being ahead in voter polls going into the elections.[6]

The Bradley effect theorizes that the inaccurate polls were skewed by the phenomenon of social desirability bias.[7][8] Specifically, some white voters give inaccurate polling responses for fear that, by stating their true preference, they will open themselves to criticism of racial motivation. Members of the public may feel under pressure to provide an answer that is deemed to be more publicly acceptable, or 'politically correct'. The reluctance to give accurate polling answers has sometimes extended to post-election exit polls as well. The race of the pollster conducting the interview may factor in to voters' answers.

Some analysts have dismissed the theory of the Bradley effect,[9] or argued that it may have existed in past elections, but not in more recent ones. Others believe that it is a persistent phenomenon.[10] Similar effects have been posited in other contexts, notably the Shy Tory Factor and spiral of silence." ....

And the lesson learned is this:

One can cheat (Read: ACORN) throughout exams and studies.

But when the real test comes up, cheating won’t fix the reality in one’s favor.

His supporters are fiction.
As is his support.
A fantasy.

I don’t think Barry is going to run for reelection anyway.

That seems to be the new ‘Rat MO. When the polls show a ‘Rat politician in trouble for their reelection bids, they quit. See Evan Bayh as the most recent example of this.

Does anyone bother to read the article? 52% would not vote for 0bama again and 44% would. That’s an 8% difference.

Every day that goes by and every press release is digging a hole this administration will eventually be unable to climb out of. Buzzing this week is about taxing the middle class....and the buzzing isn't only among middle class conservatives and independents. People are weary of the almost daily assault we face from this administration.

Exactly.

And Obama's answer to this weariness is to get in front of the cameras MORE. He thinks he hasn't communicated well enough. LOL!

I say GO for it, Obama. Make everyone sick of you!

That is astounding! What on earth did he say about obama?

I NEVER watch Geraldo for even a minute anymore, because of the very reason that he has such a love/crush affair going on with obama!

If he says something negative about obama then it is falling apart for the fake-o!
